Abu Dhabi’s leading business conglomerate, Al Masaood Group has launched the first UAE-made charging solution for electric vehicles and hybrid marine vessels.

The SHAMS+ (SHAMSPLUS) solution, released by Al Masaood Power Division, is a fully-fledged battery-charging system powered by solar energy. The Group said that it is the first such innovative solution to be fully manufactured in the UAE.

The solution with multiple-user capability will provide sustainable battery charging through solar energy at the highest charging speed starting from 25 minutes.

The ultra-fast charging solution will serve as a solar power system, with an extensive network of charging stations that can cater to all battery charging needs of the automotive and maritime sectors.

“With this unique, first-of-its-kind project, we aim to deliver better access to connectivity-enabled and seamless plug-and-charge experience. This is yet another high point in Al Masaood Power’s non-stop efforts to contribute to electrification and green mobility as the future of transportation. It will precipitate wider adoption of EVs and marine vessels in the country and the rest of the Gulf region, thereby reducing carbon emissions and helping fast-track the goals of the UAE Net Zero 2050 strategic initiative. As a pioneer, we also want to highlight that such a value-added solution is an addition to our growing large-scale energy solution projects that are completely made in the country. It also reflects our commitment to innovation, best-in-class technology, and infrastructure that will help build a sustainable future in the Emirates and the region.”

According to the statement, “Additionally, the smart internet-based and mobile ventures, which are seen to help accelerate the decarbonization of the global transportation and maritime communities, are distinct with their automatic matching voltage fluctuation for stable charging.”

Offering customers with the highest convenience and efficiency, it also operates cordless for better flexibility and easier installation in various urban and rural locations, including agricultural areas, as well as in marine ports and hubs.

Al Masaood Power will also set up a majlis and rest areas within the charging stations for a comfortable on-the-go experience. The solution will be unveiled at the Electric Vehicle Innovation Summit, which is taking place in Abu Dhabi from May 23 to 25, 2022, and is expected to launch by the third quarter of 2022.
